technology. to remain relevant we need to show impact. we can't wait 5 years. whenever we design, whatever we are doing at c & i now, my staff know that we are designing it to have an impact measure initially. even if it's just a leading indicator, it needs to show something immediately. and the other reason is we can't scale something if we don't know if it works. so that is important to us. we need to be able to test things fail through an indicator if that's what will happen and revise and fail forward again because unless we test it and know it works, we won't scale it. it doesn't make any sense to do that. so, one of the reasons why it's the right tight -- time and the right place to take this on is, this is data that you may know and have, but there are roughly 10,000 districts across the 50 states. in those 10,000 districts, the largest in new york down to 47,000, we are at the smaller percent. that district serves 25 percent of the students and they serve 40 percent of our latino, african americans and under served students. if you are going to make a difference for those kids and ge
let's look at the future. we are taking a look at some of the most exciting technologies in elevators. george, tell us about destination elevators. >> this is the technology of the future. probably the biggest single investment in elevators. san francisco has embraced the technology more than any other city in the country. a big advantage with us is passengers get to their floors sooner and there is more opportunity of customization of features for individual service. four issues of security and accessibility, this is a big advantage over traditional elevators. digest i understand these are rehabilitated upgrades of existing elevators? >> yes, these are upgrades to the original elevators from 1980. all the controls and wiring has changed but the physical mechanisms are the same. >> how much energy to these use? >> with all of the things that we did hear, energy savings is about 50% from where we started. that is a significant improvement for such a major system. >> tell me how it works. >> this is the hall keypad, which controls the elevator. the system asks where you are going before
for the technology. currently we are in the process of rolling out the common core standards in math. and there are nearly 2,000 teachers who have math responsibilities in san francisco. we are working with nearly 400 of them who are developing units of study for their students. piloting those or field testing those and revising them to and refining them and we are building over a multiyear process of building this new curriculum based upon the common core standards. these curricular units have design criteria that are based upon giving students the opportunity to tackle those rich problems that i was just discussing. tackling the meaty or chunky problems of mathematics and how we are going to roll out the 80 percent where we are developing a site for teacher model where teachers are collaborating with the model and peer to peer conversations and looking over students to evaluate what did you do to tackle this problem. can i observe what's happening in the classroom and creating an environment in which we can get a good implementation. so our math team the fully engrossed in this wor
to technology visits every tech tour tuesday and meet with thirty or 40 employees of those companies and many of them know their ipos won't come in like other families they want to be here and work in jobs by the first thing is what are we doing that the schools. that's the birthing sign of viechltd. the best investment is to create a family here because that means you've got fabricate in the way we've treated our schools and the private-public partnering we have. in addition the technology gap that sales force is helping us today with offer $1.7 million in the other person ipads and the tinge goes with it is the training of features tea administrators. that's similar to what auto deck zinc gesture offers. it's the support mechanisms. it's one thing to announce the gift bus it's the best thing to be able to receive it with the highest level of care it deserves. this is what we want to do because i know about mr. benny will be part of this for a long time he invests. vichltd is long term until your goal of skews is done. i want to see the kids successful in every school. i want to thank sails

, technology and innovation. let's invest in america. so we can create increased economic activity. we're in the midst of a very schizophrenic economic recovery. it's a recovery that has disproportionately benefited the wealthy in america. let's just look at the facts that have been laid before us. we've got corporate profits that are way up. stock market way up. c.e.o. compensation way up. productivity of the american worker way up. yet wages have remained stagnant and unemployment is still stubbornly high. working families and middle class folks have been left behind in the context of this recovery. that's why we believe the first element of any budget has to invest in america. because if you invest in america , you increase economic activity, you increase economic activity, you raise consumer demand. you raise consumer demand, the economy grows. if the economy grows by definition the deficit will be reduced. and let me also note, despite all the rhetoric from some of my friends on the other side of the aisle, under this administration , barack obama, the deficit has ctually been red
pointed out that the parking meter technology was inaccessible, that the meter head was too high if you were in a wheelchair you couldn't read the signs to know how much to put in, how much time you were getting. you needed to be able to grasp a coin and put in a specific coin. some people don't have real grasping use of their hands and fingers, but they can wrap themselves around special knobs on a steering wheel and manage to drive a vehicle with levers and knobs. the idea was make it free because you couldn't easily use the technology. now we've gotten various technology that makes it possible for people to pay by phone, by a smart card, by any number of ways. what we are suggesting is the state law be amended to allow the authorized and local jurisdiction to require meter payment, but if, and only if, the technology is fully accessible. if they're still using the old meter heads that are high and you have to put coins in, that jurisdiction will not be able to use it. san francisco is moving to accessible parking meter technology. i'll add a personal point here. i mentioned earlie
think where we are is the divide between policy and technology. it's pretty clear i think to those of us that have been watching this roll out that the technological base was not sufficient. and that the website didn't function. i felt, and i said this directly to the president's chief of staff, they ought to take down the website until it was right. they believe they need to keep it running that and they can sort out of difficulties that they brought in technological experts from a broad base of the private sector that by the end of november it can be sorted out. and be functioning properly. i don't think there's ever been any website started to do what this website does in the size of this one. i don't make excuse but i think that is pretty much fact of what's happened. >> schieffer: the president said in the beginning that one thing was that if you like the health care program you had you could keep it. we now know there was debate within the administration before he said that as to whether that was actually a promise that could be kept. should the president not have made that statem

and communications technology and the privacy and civil liberties oversight board. our review is looking across the board at our intelligence gathering to ensure that was as we gather intelligence, we are properly accounting for both the security of citizens and our allies and the privacy concerns shared by americans and citizens around the world. we also need to ensure that our intelligence resources are most effectively supporting our foreign policy and national security objectives that we are more effectively weighing the risks and rewards of our activities that we are focused above all on threats to the american people. we need to ensure are collecting information not just because we can but because we should. because we need it for our security. so again, i won't go on too long. i think it's important top context you'llize some of these revelations to look at what the administration is doing to review our intelligence activities and to look at how we balance the need for security in this completely transformed world that we live in because of the technology advances that have occurred. and
